Life Science Materials Laboratory
ADEKA has identified life sciences as its new business area, and is focusing on developing new products in the field. While focusing on the keywords ‘regenerative medicine’, ‘preventive medicine’, and ‘improvement of quality of life’, ADEKA is accelerating the process of establishing the new business by utilizing external resources along with the technologies and network it has developed so far in chemicals and foods areas.
Major Research Themes
We are working on research and development of a novel decellularized tissue for regenerative medicine and device. The tissue is obtained by the unique ADEKA’s decellularization treatment, which is well host cell-recruiting matrix. Our quality management system (ISO 13485:2016) was first certificated with TÜV SÜD in Japan in 2019, which its scope is design and development, production and distribution of decellularized animal tissue materials for surgical devices. We are challenging to enter the worldwide medical device market by creating new value.
Progress of rapid aging is a problem not only in Japan but in all developed countries. It is a common desire of all human beings to prevent illness and maintain a healthy body for the rest of their lives. With its focus on helping the customers maintain immunity and prevent lifestyle-related diseases, ADEKA is promoting the development of healthy materials that can be expected to be superiorly effective in achieving these objectives.
